Ever walk into a wine store and wonder what all the labels mean? Looking for a way to upgrade your Labor Day celebration without spending a ton of money? Today, wine expert Dave Falchek from the American Wine Society joins us to talk all things vino. How do you pick a wine? What are some clues that a wine is good for your party? What do those ratings mean in a wine shop? What wines go best with burgers and dogs? We’ll answer all of those questions and more on today’s show!
In our headlines segment, we’ll find out why a half a ton of weed was returned to the seller as it was going public. One new billion-dollar pot company is to blame, and the stock price isn’t looking great. What does this mean for cannibis stocks in general? Of course, Joe and OG both have opinions. Also, a recent New York Times piece shares how the next recession might start. We’ll walk through the possibilities and also maybe look into the crystal ball ourselves.
After a little dose of Doug’s trivia, we’ll throw out the Haven Life Line to Peter, who wants to know if he made a mistake by taking his Roth IRA fund out to help pay for real estate.
